When Graham Waspe’s loyal guide dog of six years was diagnosed with a rare form of glaucoma, Waspe was devastated. The local animal hospital did everything they could to preserve Edward’s sight, but ultimately had to remove his eyes to alleviate the pain and prevent further damage.

Graham was at a loss. He knew he needed a new guide dog to help him navigate his surroundings, but he didn’t want to abandon his loyal friend whom he loved dearly. Enter Opal, a two-year-old female that would soon guide both Edward and Graham.

The duo became a trio, and the three of have gotten along harmoniously ever since. You can read more about this touching story at the East Anglian Daily Times and Daily Mail.
